Medium Scale Dairy Grazing/Beef

This property is part of a larger property listed, CC20403. Please note this option is subject to survey and vendors selling the balance of their property. The vendors are open to increasing/decreasing the area to suit interested parties, within reason.

The property described is well suited to an excellent dairy grazing, beef or finishing block. Whilst the stock facilities are on the balance of the property being sold, a set of cattle yards is really all this property needs, as there is access to water sources to tap into.

The added benefit here is having the ability to run a dairy support operation, with heifer grazing and wintering through the reference period. With grazing prices on the rise, here is an opportunity to control costs and most importantly ensuring your stock is well cared for.
